God’s standards are pretty high.
Each day presents a new choice – to follow the path of God or carve out your own.
Which will you choose?next >
Confirm your promise to your servant— the promise that is for all those who honor you. Remove the insults that I dread because your rules are good. Look how I desire your precepts! Make me live by your righteousness.
Psalm 119:38-40next >
As much as we hate to admit it, the truth is, sometimes people look down on Christians as backward thinking, intolerant, or as hypocrites because of what we believe. When reading through comments on social media, one might think we believe in some imaginary mythical being. While people may insult our beliefs, how we live our lives shows them how good God actually is.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “Sometimes you’re the only Jesus a person will ever see?” The way you conduct your life and how you treat others allows people to see Jesus through your actions. No one can accuse you of being hypocritical or intolerant when you love people as Jesus loved people. Can you imagine Jesus ever telling you that you loved others too much? Be kind to everyone you meet. Remember the greatest commandment to love God and love others.

Lord God, let me reflect you in all I say and do. Let my actions imitate my love for you and others. Let me live in such a way that honors you. Amen.next >
Go recognizing God’s image in yourself and others.
Stand up for what is right; live your life in a way pleasing to God.
Be kind to everyone and let your actions speak louder than your words.
